ICMR recommends MCI to include lessons in traditional Indian medicine for doctors

December 4, 2016 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Announcements, Healthcare 

I was reading about this post today in social media channels !!!

Was a little surprised at this announcement by ICMR !!! If teaching basics of Ayurveda to Allopathy Drs is recommended, similar exercise should be made to make #Ayurveda drs understand how #Allopathy medicine, as a science works !!! These are two different streams of medicine – one is purely modern science and evidence based medicine and another one is purely ancient science and “no evidence” based medicine !!!

Before GOI initiates any such move on holistic healthcare, it’s better to listen to the voice of stakeholders, take them into confidence before any such integration… Challenges are plenty as both the streams have to look upon each other as complimenting each other in the process.

Which is mainstream medicine and which is complimentary stream here??? Who will define this???

How does one address medico legal disputes as the origin of treatment failure may be in any stream…who will be held responsible for such failures???

What is the role of a patient, who may attempt at many treatments before finally landing at the doorsteps of Allopathy…and anything may go wrong at this stage & finally Allopathy drs are subject to punishments!!!

While educating the Allopathy drs on ancient streams is a good move, as it will make them understand and appreciate our traditional streams, so that they need not look at this medicine with a doubtful eye.

I guess tolerance for others medicinal streams will improve with this kind of exercise!!!

However, GoI has to take many stake holders into confidence – Allopathy drs, Ayush Drs, Consumers, Judiciary, Insurers etc into confidence and must roll out any holistic healthcare initiatives after understanding the ground realities and challenges posed ahead….

Infact same sentiments are expressed by ICMR teams too !!!
